D.I.Y Friday - studded Converse

Do you all feel the same? Is it June or what? I might not work at the Met Office, but this is officially the worst summer weather ever!

Thankfully I've got a trip to Poland to visit my parents (where is almost 30 degrees) to look forward. And I can't wait to get a taste of Euro 2012 - which starts today , btw. Super exciting- and I'm not a big fan of football at all. 

As flip flops, sandals and any other open shoes are basically a no-no at the moment, I've decided to pimp up my old Converse trainers.

Everyone is going 'stud crazy' at the moment, and I'm powerless to resist.

You can get your hands on some studs through Ebay and they're super cheap.

For now, I've only studded the back of my trainers...but now I've started, I'm not sure I can stop! I've totally caught the stud bug.

All you need is a pair of scissors to make little holes wherever you want the studs to go, then use the backing screws to fasten them in place.

Be careful with the scissors though. I actually needed to use my first aid kit yesterday- not so glamorous.

And just 15 mins later...voila! My new Converse trainers never looked so good.

What do you think?

Lots of Love xxx
